WORLD PEACE is a Local Issue documents the efforts of citizens working together to convince their City Council to adopt a Nuclear Weapons Freeze Resolution. 300 residents showed up to make their case. This film focuses on how the impassioned pleas of these people resulted in Council Members changing either positions, ensuring passage of the Nuclear Freeze Resolution. Using state of the art digital technology, Dorothy and her team have upgraded and updated the film. The new version includes cameo vignettes of Paul Newman, and Senator Edward (Ted) Kennedy. We also hear from Senator Ed Markey (then Representative Markey), who introduced a Nuclear Freeze Resolution to Congress in 1983, and recently introduced the SANE Act (Smarter Approach to Nuclear Expenditures). What happened at that meeting is still relevant to the nuclear weapons stockpiling efforts around the world today.
